Abstract

A touch sensitive access means (16, 19a, 19b) for fitment to a vehicle (12) and arranged such that, when touched, the means signals unlatching of a door latch (23) of said vehicle, wherein the access means is programmed only to signal unlatching once a vehicle user has ceased touching the access means.
